    Does simply pressing the back or home button actually close the the running app? If I press the back button in mail for instance the phone returns to the home screen but if I then press the Mail button again the mail will open rite where I left off at not on the Mail home screen. this happens with all the apps.

    most apps are cached, similarly to how your browser works. some continue to run. some of those that continue to run are in your notification bar, and others are hidden and only viewable in the "running services" window.

    the ones that aren't on your running services window, that pop open quick such as mail, are cached.
